Bach’s chorale prelude to “Kommt her zu mir spricht Gottes Sohn” is not only present in the Neumeister Sammlung, but is present in Mus. Ms. 30439 as well. I published the version from that last source two years ago and it is (of course) present in the Edition based on that manuscript. The version in Neumeister’s manuscript differs is several little details from the version in Mus Ms 30439. Enough, in my opinion to make a seperate score from it. The differences between the two version can be an inspiration for the performance of all these chorale preludes from Baroque Germany: the notes are probably more an invitation to add one’s own variations while playing them than an instruction to play the notes exactly as written.

The recording was done on the sample set of the Müller-organ in the Sint Bavokerk in Haarlem by Voxus Organs for Hauptwerk.
